A 70-year-old woman killed early Wednesday when her 2005 Dodge Caravan was struck head-on by a tractor-trailer has been identified.

The crash happened about 12:50 a.m. on Interstate 75 north near Mile Marker 141, Georgia State Patrol said.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was traveling south when he lost control of his vehicle, crossed the median and struck the Dodge Caravan, according to the GSP.
